Here, we report a rare case of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Cytomegalovirus (CMV), and mucosal Candida albicans coinfection in a post-renal transplant recipient. The patient presented with a cheek ulcer with nasal swelling after 2 months of immunosuppressive therapy following renal transplantation. Microbiological investigations revealed MRSA and C. albicans from the respective lesions and polymerase chain reaction for CMV from blood sample was positive. The patient was subsequently treated with appropriate regimen and is on regular follow-up.
